We had a big class of 150
I don't have my 1968 Yearbook, but I sure do remember what I looked like in it. A one-word description.........."dorky-nerdy"! Very short hair and a very skinny body at 98 pounds. When a classmate of mine seen me in 2008, she didn't even recognize me. Longer hair and 210 pounds.
It can be somewhat weird-to-funny when you see a classmate from back then, and they still have the same facial look and hair style.
My BIL (wife's brother) has told me that he has never been to one of his class reunions. He said, "I want to remember them for how they looked at graduation, not how they look now." What he meant by that, is weight gain, and sometimes a whole lot and a full beard.
I have a classmate who was a Cheerleader for our Varsity Basketball Team. Back then, she was a little plump, but today, she is just plain heavy. She has had numerous health problems/surgeries, and she will admit it's from smoking cigarettes for years, and she also has to use an oxygen holder to breath with.
Thanks for confirming my suspicions that you once went by Lonnie.
I don't have a yearbook. I wasn't smart enough to get one.
I was also called Lonzo by some and Hey You by others.
Back in the days when everyone dressed up for their picture.
I'm not sure I got one from my graduation year. I may have gotten one from my Sophomore year.
I dig them chicks
The year those tomatoes were born (1934):
-U.S. just turned the corner of The Great Depression
-Middle of the Dust Bowl storms (1930-1936)
-Early years of The New Deal (1933–1938)
-Gold Reserve Act passed (confiscation of Americans' gold)
-Dillinger was killed
-Pretty Boy Floyd was killed
-Baby Face Nelson was killed
-Bonnie and Clyde were killed
For my small county school, we had to combine with the other schools in the county to have a consolidated yearbook. And, even then, grades 7 and up were included. So I have 6 years of them.
One of them, I think my sophomore year?, had an inscription by a young lady that said she would always remember that night at the drive in theater. I gonna bet that she doesn't really remember it anymore, and I have no idea who she was or what she was talking about.
Thank you! You have brought out the most unstoppable chuckle I have had in a very, very long time, thanks.
